Hi, I am Doug Patt and this is how to architect. This is how to make a portfolio part one. This is one of my portfolios. It is completely over designed and over built and it looks unfortunately like a bomb. I made it in graduate school as a project created from found parts.
The handle was part of a guitar, the body was a wood box, the metals were found scraps, the screws were purchased and the lacking part in various head or adornments were made by hand by yours truly. The exterior is partially exposed wood and applied metal. I actually carved the image of one of my project photographs into the wood on one of the sides of the portfolio. This is how it works.
After the lacking mechanisms are dismantled the front slides and pivots out of the way of revealing the interior. The portfolio contains board of photographs of some of my graduate school projects. The photo board were stacked and then placed into the hand made sleeves that allow the completed assembly to slide into place.
As I insinuated, this portfolio is unusual because it was more of a class project than a buzz meant to garner interest in my work. Although it’s worth for me in the past, I would probably not recommend this type of custom portfolio if you are looking for work in a mainstream architectural office. I say that simply because it is bit unconventional and may scare your desired future employer. That said I have included it in this series as an example of what is possible in the round of portfolios. See you for part two!
